In 1970, the Federal Government expanded the scope of the operations of the Public Service from core policy implementation to active participation in all sectors of the economy through the establishment of Agencies, Parastatals, and Commissions. The additional bodies were to be the drivers of the socio-economic objectives of the Federal Government. Some of them were set up on ad hoc basis to address specific challenges.
Over the years, the Bodies transmuted into permanent institutions with overlapping functions in some cases, and successive Administrations had further created more Bodies without regard to their efficacy in the attainment of the socio-economic Agenda of the Federal Government leading to escalation in cost of governance.
